You know what’s easier than living life? Watching everyone else live it. I had this feeling twice today. Once when I came home tonight after teaching tonight and started clicking on some of the blogs I read periodically. (I have a list of blogs I read regularly and some I visit now and then.) One of the bloggers was talking about the book they just wrote. I thought, “I want to write a book. ”
The problem is, I’ve had that thought more than once. I want to write a book.
But I don’t do it. I read blogs instead.
The other time was listening to my friend Matt on the radio. I was so happy to hear him being interviewed and I get so happy when I hear about people reading his book or listening to his Lighthouse CD. It’s fun to know someone who is really breaking out in the speaking/writing world.
He retweeted me when he was on the air (don’t worry, it was a commercial break), and I thought, “Does that make me kind of cool? That he retweeted me while he was being interviewed on satellite radio?”
And then I thought, “I want to be on satellite radio.”
I really want to have a show, but I’d settle for being interviewed.
Looks like I need to go write a book.
